    • Abstract

       

      In this paper,we report observations of unusual whistlers recorded at Jammu (geomag.lat.= 22° 26′N; 𝐿 =1.17), India on March 8, 1999 during the daytime. They are interpreted as one-hop ducted whistlers having propagated along higher 𝐿 -values in closely spaced narrow ducts from the opposite hemispheres. After leakage from the duct, the waves might have propagated in the earthionosphere waveguide towards the equator in surface mode.Tentative explanation of the dynamic spectra of these events is briefly presented.
